Google Application Modernization - FAQs

  • What is meant by App modernization on the Cloud?

    -

    Application modernization on cloud entitles customizing, rearchitecting, or fine-tuning applications to seamlessly integrate and run with the adopted cloud platform.

    Legacy applications are often hardwired to specific systems, kernels, or backends and hence perform poorly on cloud if simply lifted and shifted.

    To leverage the best of the advanced cloud architecture and ensure high workload performance, modernizing applications should be on the top of the bucket list for enterprise owners.

  • How do you achieve application modernization?

    -

    Application modernization could be done in six fundamental approaches or the 6 Rs: Repurchase, Rehost, Replatform, Refactor, Retire, Retain. The first approach involves simple transition of the usage of an on-prem software to its cloud version, essentially changing licenses.

    Rehost involves lifting and shifting applications as is to the cloud environment while Replatform includes the same methodology but with a few customizations for better performance on the cloud.

    Refactor or Rearchitect involves a complete overhaul of the applications, including breaking down monolithic structures into simpler modules or microservices and redesigning codebases to not only migrate them to cloud but making them cloud-ready end-to-end.

    Retire and Retain involves practices to replace worn-out, redundant software or retaining existing, highly critical on-prem applications as-is, respectively.

  • What are the main components of application modernization?

    -

    Application modernization impacts the entire app’s lifecycle, inputs, and outputs.

    Hence, to fully modernize applications, enterprises must also refactor app databases, fine tune database management platforms, modify application networks-protocols-libraries, customize servers, integrate with DevOps, and streamline app security.

    Firms can leverage services of application modernization partners like Cloud4C or native cloud-tools to achieve the above without disruption.
